NetCobol Field and database size retrictions

NetCobol Field and database size retrictions

NetCobol Field and database size retrictions

Hey all:
Trying to convert to the Fujitsu NETcobol and have run into issues.

Would anyone know what the max database size can be in NetCobol?

Would anyone know the max field size that can be used in Netcobol Databases?

Example: IN Micro focus Cobol it is varchar(max) Size 2 GB.


RE: NetCobol Field and database size retrictions

bit more detail.

converting into NetCOBOL from what language? or are you converting from NETCOBOL to another language?

What database vendor and version?
What issues
- loading data to database
- converting code to use database
- retrieving data from database post conversion

and what error are you getting?

For individual character fields and in most cases limit is going to be 2147483647 (e.g. int32 size) which is not a varchar(max) but something else.

As for database size NetCobol does not care about it at all - you can have a 1TB database or a 10MB that is all the same for any COBOL vendor that supports databases.

reading these 2 manuals is advisable
